The US believes that a recent chemical weapons attack in Syria was carried out by Assad, and it appears that Trump isn’t going to just watch innocent people die without taking action. In response to the attack, the US is now firing missiles at a Syrian airfield in hopes of halting future attacks on innocent people.
The death toll from the recent Syrian chemical weapons attack is estimated to be at least one-hundred people. The horrifying act is believed to have been carried out using banned chemical weapons.
Trump is currently in Florida for a meeting with the President of China, Xi Jinpeng. Ironically, one of the major subjects Trump is expected to address with the Chinese President is the nuclear threat of North Korea. With the constant deadly threats across the globe aimed at the US, it seems like we may be on the verge of a new world war.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has confirmed that the US missiles have been launched specifically at the facility which “delivered this most recent chemical weapons attack.”
As recently reported, “Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea, the USS Ross and the USS Porter, fired 59 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Shayrat Airfield in Homs province in western Syria, the Defense Department said. That’s the airfield from which the United States believes the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fired the banned weapons.”
It may be a few days until the US response to the Syrian chemical weapons attack’s effectiveness is decided, but until then, it’s good to know that we have a President looking to protect innocent life.
